Very rarely does a historical fiction leave me breathless and eagerly anticipating the next book, but this book did just that! This engaging and amazing series written by an up and coming author who is quite a master storyteller is everything that historical fiction should be, but often isn't . Filled with rich historical detail that one can tell was maliciously researched, I loved the characters development, there were so many real and meaningful conversations and interactions that made these characters totally come to life! I also loved the romance, I am a sucker for a good romance and this one was perfect, with just enough to keep it interesting without it being too much and it developed nicely.
This book really was an excellent read and I highly recommend it!
